Red algae is a red algae, which is used to produce agar – a gelling substance used in the food industry and for the production of bioplastics. In Poland, it is an endangered species – it has been exploited by man. Let's talk about the need to create new materials, but also about the effects of using resources from the environment.

Everyone is aware of the dangers of plastic pollution to the environment. Bioplastics are plastics based on natural materials, biodegradable, which are an excellent alternative to plastics.

During the workshop, we will have the opportunity to learn about the basic methods of producing biomaterials and test several recipes that can be implemented at home.

Participants will receive practical advice on finding recipes, processing and using raw materials. The workshop will result in making samples that each participant will be able to take with them.

Workshops for children, participation of parents or an adult guardian is obligatory.
